Trend starts to emerge for unpredictable Wilson and Fraser

Perhaps inspired by recent events in popular culture, there was an ensemble cast of points-scoring heroes in Southampton’s 3-3 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday.

A whole host of popular assets got themselves either goals or assists at St. Mary’s Stadium in a game that taught us plenty about the two sides involved.

With just two matches left of the season, we examine whether the Saints or Cherries have anything left to offer.

Southampton 3-3 Bournemouth

Goals: Shane Long (£4.6m), James Ward-Prowse (£5.1m), Matt Targett (£4.2m) | Dan Gosling (£4.7m), Callum Wilson x2 (£6.7m)

Assists: Nathan Redmond (£5.4m), Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (£4.4m), Yan Valery (£4.1m) | Wilson, David Brooks (£5.1m), Ryan Fraser (£6.3m)

Callum Wilson (£6.7m) continues to frustrate his owners with the unpredictability of his attacking returns, although a trend is starting to emerge. After blanking against Fulham in Double Gameweek 35, roughly 40,000 managers opted to move him on for the trip to Southampton but watched on as he scored 16 points from two goals and an assist. That haul was his third of double-figures in his last four away matches with Bournemouth, in a period that featured three successive blanks at home.

It would certainly seem that Wilson has recently preferred playing on his travels than in front of his won supporters. In the last four away matches, no player in the league has a higher expected goals (xG) than the Bournemouth forward, his score in such fixtures roughly double that of his last four at home. Therefore, perhaps we should expect little from Wilson in Gameweek 37 when Spurs come the Vitality Stadium, before predicting big things from him for Bournemouth’s Gameweek 38 trip to Crystal Palace.

It feels strange to expect something from the Cherries on their travels after a season characterised by poor form on the road. However, in recent trips, they have made some improvements, earning seven points from their last four away games (won two, drawn one) after taking none from the previous nine. Central to that has been Bournemouth’s enhanced threat on the counter-attacking, which has had Wilson at its heart. In similar circumstances to the 5-0 win at Brighton, it was the forward’s pass that set-up Dan Gosling (£4.7m) for Bournemouth’s opening goal of the game, which was also their first shot after going 1-0 down. The central midfielder now has two goals in his last three Premier League outings, which is as many as he registered in the previous 67, although he did go off injured in the second half.

Ryan Fraser (£6.3m) has been of similar frustration to his owners in recent weeks, but like Wilson, it looks as if he has finally produced a trend for us to follow. Again, it’s based around the venue, as the Scottish international has blanked in the last seven home matches, but has attacking returns in three of his last four on the road.

However, Fraser’s credentials for the final two games of the season don’t look quite as strong as Wilson’s, given that he was actually named on the bench for the trip to Southampton. Eddie Howe opted to experiment with a 5-3-2 formation with Jack Simpson (£3.9m) and Nathaniel Clyne (£4.4m) providing the width from the wing-back positions with a three-man midfield of Jefferson Lerma (£4.5m), David Brooks (£5.1m) and Gosling behind Wilson and Josh King (£6.4m).

Fraser did take to the pitch after just 23 minutes though, as Howe opted to make a tactical substitution with Southampton largely dominating the early proceedings. He switched his 5-3-2 into a 4-3-3, to match Southampton’s formation, by bringing Fraser on for Chris Mepham (£4.5m) and deploying him on the right of the front three. Simpson dropped back into the middle to play centre-back alongside Steve Cook (£4.3m) while Nathan Aké (£5.1m) moved out to play left-back.

“Tactically we weren’t where we needed to be. Chris [Mepham, substituted for Ryan Fraser after 23 minutes] unfortunately was sacrificed for the team. We were much better for the change.” – Eddie Howe

“It was difficult as we suffered two injuries in the game, players were playing slightly out of position and it was a little bit of a disjointed shape. We had to dig deep and we made an early tactical switch as we found it difficult to control the ball. The change enabled us to do that and we were excellent until half time, there was a constant ebb and flow with each team taking the momentum. It wasn’t one for the defensive coaches to take too much from, but both teams really went for it. Both managers had to constantly reshuffle their tactics and from that perspective, it was an interesting one to be involved in.” – Eddie Howe

Fantasy managers were treated to the best and worst of Shane Long (£4.6m) as he opened the scoring for a second successive match. Some managers have been put off the Southampton forward because of his uncertainty of starts, but he has featured from the beginning in each of the last two Gameweeks now, and scored in each of them. Part of the concern had been fuelled by the fact that Ralph Hasenhüttl had generally paired midfielder Nathan Redmond (£5.4m) with one more naturally recognised forward in a front two, usually Danny Ings (£5.4m). However, against Bournemouth, he went with a front-three with Redmond on the left, Ings through the middle and Long on the right, helping them look very dangerous in the first half. Long got his second goal in two matches, putting his side into a deserved lead but should have done better when he hit the post of an open goal after an Artur Boruc (£4.1m) save.

The return of Jan Valery (£4.1m) at right-back was good news both for his owners and those in possession of James Ward-Prowse (£5.1m). The defender got himself an assist for a trademark cross to substitute Matt Targett (£4.2m), but his place in the side freed Ward-Prowse from having to play right wing-back, a role he took on in the previous two matches and failed to impress in against Newcastle particularly. His return to the midfield saw him grab his first attacking return since Gameweek 30. That was his seventh league goal of the season, which means he now has as many to his name in 2018/19 as he did in his previous two campaigns with Southampton.

“It’s a great feeling to score my first goal for the club. It took me long enough but I finally got there! It was a great cross from Yan Valery and I just thought to head it back across goal and get good contact, thankfully I did. I’ve been working on that in training!” – Matt Targett

However, despite some of their defensive assets getting attacking returns, the Saints’ options at the back continue to disappoint when it comes to their primary function. The three goals conceded against Bournemouth means Hasenhüttl’s men still have just one clean sheet since Gameweek 29. In fact, despite the improvements that the Austrian has undoubtedly made at St Mary’s, Southampton have still lost more points from leading positions in the Premier League this season than any other side (27).

“We lost two points which is a pity but today it was more important to be safe. We know we still have a few weaknesses in our game, we have to develop a few things that aren’t perfect at the moment. But that’s the Premier League and today it was a tactical and very intensive game.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Southampton XI (4-3-3): Gunn; Bertrand, J Stephens, Bednarek, Valery; Højbjerg, Romeu (Targett 45′), Ward-Prowse; Redmond, Ings (Armstrong 51′), S Long (Austin 88′).

Bournemouth XI (5-3-2): Boruc; Simpson, Aké, S Cook, Mepham (Fraser 23′), Clyne (Solanke 72′); Gosling (Hyndman 53′), Lerma, Brooks; Wilson, King.

    Afternoon.
    I'm stuck for ideas.

      Giddy up horsey 🙂

      What do you need help with?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Got a few targets but not enough money.

        Lloris
        Kola Doherty Robertson
        Son Eriksen Mane Jota
        Wilson Jimi Aguero

        JWP Cathcart Bednarek

        Eriksen to someone.

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Son and Eriksen to Hazard and someone?

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            I could, just not sure if its worth a hit.
            Could get Bilva and Hazard

        2. Cruz88
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Why not keep Eriksen? Decent team and similar attacking options to me (except I have Salah instead of Son and am benching Wilson and playing Miliv). You could play JWP against the hammers?

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Just getting frustrated with him.

        3. HamezMace
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Eriksen and Kola to B.Silva and TAA?...or Shaw?

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            Not a bad idea, but I can see Arsenal finally getting a clean sheet.

            1. HamezMace
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Not sure I do.
              The Brighton game is actually a tricky one, IF Cardiff beat Palace on the Saturday, a draw does nothing for Brighton (because of goal difference) so they will have to go for the win, they'll have a better chance of getting something from Arsenal, than they would against City.

              1. caldracula

                1 month, 20 days ago

                Brighton are on -22 and Cardiff are on -36 so they're miles ahead if it comes down to GD. Don't get your point with that one?

                1. HamezMace
                  • 4 Years
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Cardiff need two wins to stay up, minimum (as you say GD is too extreme).

                  So IF Cardiff manage to get 6 points they have 37 points total.

                  Brighton currently have 35, so assuming City will beat them on the last day, with the title on the line, this seems inevitable.

                  So for Brighton, a draw against Arsenal does nothing, if they draw (assuming they lose the City) they'll finish on 36 points.
                  If they lose they'll finish on 35 - which is the same as Cardiff would have with a win and a draw, but due to GD Brighton still stay up.

                  1. TRASH BOAT
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    Brighton know no other way but to keep it tight and get a set piece result. They will need help from Palace and United I think to stop Cardiff.

                    1. HamezMace
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 20 days ago

                      Well I think the Spurs game could be interrupted as more defensive than usual from Brighton.

                      All I'm saying is that if Cardiff beat Palace, they move onto 34 points.
                      ...and Brighton will go into the Arsenal game, on 35 pts, knowing that anything less than a win, and they could need to get result against City on the last day, or they are relying on United not losing to Cardiff....and United seem capable of losing to anyone right now, I don't think top four will possible for United in GW38 either.

                  2. caldracula
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 3 Years
                    1 month, 20 days ago

                    I highly doubt Cardiff will get 6 points from their next two, and even if they get 4 Brighton only need a draw to finish a point above them so I can see them playing for one tbh.

                    1. HamezMace
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 20 days ago

                      But what I'm saying is due to GD, they wouldn't even need a point.

                      I think they'd be more inclined to go for a win against Arsenal to take away the risk of going to the last day.

                      1. caldracula
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 3 Years
                        1 month, 20 days ago

                        Sorry, I posted that and then realised what you was saying makes sense, I agree.

                      2. HamezMace
                        • 4 Years
                        1 month, 20 days ago

                        I'd go as far to say that I'd fancy Cardiff to beat United, more than I'd fancy Brighton to not lose to City.

                        Personally I'm hoping it'll be done before the last day, as I want to TC a City player against Brighton, and I'd be much happier about it if I knew they had nothing to play for.

  2. FC Hakkebøf (Chopped…

    Why on earth are people selling DDG? Best GK option for the rest of the season imo.

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Because he could/should be dropped and United can't defend.

    2. Men in green tights
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Someone started rumours of being dropped after several big mistakes do not believe it myself just think is press making stories up as usual and then then everyone jumping ship just to regret as they are going to get 2 clean sheets for a change

  3. svg53
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Have Laporte and Vardy
    Change to TAA and Kun for -4.

    Yes ?

  4. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    2FTs and lost what to do... Haz, Palace and the Man U boys the best picks for the end of season? Eriksen/Gray to go? Any help would be great 🙂

    Ryan
    Laporte. TAA. Doherty
    Sterling. Mané. Eriksen. Son
    Agüero. Jiménez. Gray
    (Foster, Duffy, Højbjerg, Bednarek)

    1. Men in green tights
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 20 days ago

      I'm doing erk to pogs and toying with getting in Lukaku or Shaw in ,people have been saying Zaha is not a bad choice but keeping away from it myself also Jota not a bad pick for this week

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Yeah, I’m thinking possibly Foster+Eriksen >> Guaita+Pogba. Leaves MITB for Gray to Zaha next week

    @LynchStandard

    Mohamed Salah training with #LFC at Melwood this morning. Not sure where those injury rumours came from; think social media scaremongering might be a theme for the end of the season.


    @LynchStandard

    Roberto Firmino also taking part in training. Huge boost for #LFC ahead of tomorrow’s game against Barcelona.

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Good stuff, cheers

    2. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Fabinho back too (also via above)

    3. HMC
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      If bobby plays vs Barca, would that mean he’s less likely to play 2 games in a few days?

      Seriously struggling for a bobby replacement (have Jiménez and Wilson), and I’m trying to free funds for Hazard

  6. HaffNanner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 20 days ago

    12pt gap to make up. Wilson to Zaha a good move?

    Ryan (Foster)
    Doherty VVD Robertson (Valery Duffy)
    Sterling Mane Son Jota (Hojbjerg)
    Aguero Jimenez Wilson

    1FT 0.2ITB

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Keep Wilson - much better stats than Zaha

      1. HaffNanner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Thanks. Maybe I'll focus on the GK situation instead. Might shift Foster for Fab or Gunn.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 20 days ago

          Foster to Gunn and then Hojberg to Redmond in 38 possible?

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 20 days ago

            JWP over Redmond if not

  7. Jönny
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    I'm more or less out of the running in all my leagues now, so feeling punty...

    Two free transfers this week: Son & Rondon -> Foden & Lukaku (c) ???

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Lukaku injured, allegedly.

      1. Jönny
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        Ahh, boo. Looked like two perfect fixtures for everyone's favourite flat track bully.

    2. HaffNanner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Certainly a punt. Wouldn't go for it myself.

    3. Legend of Rosický
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 20 days ago

      much rather go hazard (c) + quaner

    4. avfc82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      Avoid Foden, I doubt he'll see many minutes.

  8. Brap.
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 20 days ago

    Harsh in the article re where Shane Long was playing. We know he's rubbish but at least he should be in the stadium...

    1. Brap.
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      He's now been brought in from the road.*

  9. Team Cruel
    • 3 Years

    Wilson and Fraser are the two biggest trolls this season. Owned them for all their blanks, missed all their hauls.

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 20 days ago

      This. Annoying isn't it?

      1. Team Cruel
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 20 days ago

        If there was some sort of trend there I would have no problem admitting I got it wrong. But they are a completely random team. Either they blow away teams or they get blown away themselves. And there's no way of correctly predicting which will happen when.

            Maybe Set N Forget Wilson next season 😮

            1. HamezMace
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 20 days ago

              Think he'll be 7.5m minimum next season...even if he stays at Bournemouth...could be more if he moves, but not sure who would buy him as a starting player.

              1. Amey
                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Hmmm
                  Agreed. I've never followed price before so I am unaware about it.
                  Thank you both for making me realize that 🙂
                  Hopefully new cheap gems will appear next season.

                    Oh yeah, forget it's your first year playing.
                    Yes, prices will change at the start of each new season, and performance in the previous season is a major factor.
                    Positions can also be reclassified.

                        Not First year 😛
                        I've been playing for 6 years but with no attention 😀
                        (You guys call that causal here 😛 )

                        This is first year with some attention

                          I never would have pictured you as a filthy casual Amey. 🙂

                Yep
                Same here.
                Next season I'll pick Laporte, Jimenez & Wilson from 1st gw. Lost too many points by not owning them.

                  1 month, 20 days ago

                  Think the ship has sailed for the two strikers. They'll probably be priced out at around 8m and then cheaper options will emerge alongside Kun/Kane/Auba.

                  1. Amey
                      1 month, 20 days ago

                      You're right 🙁
                      Stupid me. Stuck with Arnie & Auba for too long this season.
                      Learned my lesson though 🙂

                  The 2 players that have been a constant nail in the eye this season for me.

                3. Pia06rc

                    They're good budget options who you shouldn't expect to score every single game. If you keep knee-jerking them out after every couple of blanks, of course you'll miss their hauls.

                    Fraser only cost 5.5 GW1 and he's been pretty consistent. The only sticky patch he had coincided with a run of games which included City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Wolves, so its to be expected.

                    Think Wilson was only 6m at the start and when he's fit, he hasn't blanked for more than a couple of games in a row?

                                                B/C. I’d still probably do B and enjoy the C non-captain points if they come as he must still have low ownership?

                                                  Anyone else tempted by THE RELEGATOR PvA this week?

                                                  Other weirdos I'm considering:

                                                  Leno
                                                  Antonio
                                                  Pogba (ughhh)

                                                    Wouldn't pay the extra for PVA when Wan Bissaka is around.
                                                    Wouldn't get Leno when Arsenal have conceded three in each of the last three.
                                                    Wouldn't get Pogba now either, not looking good on the eye, or in the actual returns column.

                                                    ...Antonio, must be better options for nearly 7m?

                                                      All good points. No idea where to go tbh. Can afford Eriksen -> Hazard.

                                                        Lots seems to jumping on Hazard this week, so it's probably a good move.

                                                    One of the moves I'm thinking about but MY GOD United look dreadful.

                                                    Maybe Rashford and Lukaku injuries will release Pog to do more attacking but who on earth will they actually play?

                                                    Matic - Herrera
                                                    Sanchez(?) Pogba Lingard/Mata
                                                    Martial(?)

                                                    This is the move I'm going , I know it's going against form but if utd attack and pogs playing further up against a very very poor side you are looking at possible 15pts compare to erks possible 8pts and he will be tired did not look very good last game
                                                    Hope this makes sense

                                                  Firmino -> Lukaku looks an obvious move.
                                                  Man U back to easy fixtures, such as the ones that got OGS the manager's job.

                                                    I'm not sure United have easy fixtures. They had to rely on penalties to beat West Ham recently.

                                                    Need to make up 4K places to get into top 10K- am also 85 points ahead in ML. Would you play safe and captain Aguero or get Hazard in ( Eriksen to Hazard and Son to Redmond -4) and give it a go?

                                                      Tough to lose Son. What about to Mili not Redmond?

                                                      What is your plan for triple Wolves at Anfield on the last GW?

                                                    Is this worth it???

                                                    Rashford+Gray > Firmino+Long

                                                    This would be -4 and depends on Rashford/Firmino fitness!!

                                                      B looks like an upgrade, A is probably sideways...

                                                        maybe, but I doubt I'll make top 10k with the template.

                                                      Both could work. Why you dropping Son?
